On August 28th 1997 digital satellite broadcasts began and the there languages were given dedicated channels.
First of we see a very busy test card with XJTV identification and 625 lines for terrestrial transmission and 50hz and clock leading into the 6am hour.
Although SECAM broadcasts of XJTV-3 do not exist on satellite its just DVB-S satellite using 576 lines.
Then at the 6am hour straight into the start up video showing the country side and the cites and the local peoples.
Then into a what's onto today slides.
Then finally the new broadcast day starts with the previous nights English language news about the region with a very Americanised opening video and theme, this news is broadcast on all there XJTV channels.
Thanks to the SatDirectory for this video, I would of not been able to blog about this channel otherwise.
Hope you all enjoy.
